86-88 d60 in a TJ build thread?

Guys have any of you seen a 86-88 dana 60 (that one that's really offset) put into a TJ?
I got a line on one, but don't want to save myself a few hundred now, to cause myself days of trouble later.
Seems like everyone gets the much more expensive 79ish unit, or drops more than I paid on the whole jeep for a brand new aftermarket housing. Seein as this is a budget build, that ain't happening.
I know the guy that has it, so he let me take some numbers. Looks to me like it's within a inch of working. It looks like the distance between frame side coil buckets that barely won't clear the housing/leaf perch, if that makes any sense typed out.
I already got a rear, and somewhat of a plan for that.
Still trying to lock down the front...
